Arm Wrestle Aunt Gertie

Posted on 06 April 2010

Let Aunt Gertrude keep the argyle and the hounds-tooth,
but arm-wrestle that 'ol gal for the plaid!
Double D Ranch's madras plaid collection is a virtual 'melting pot' of colors, embroidery and cool finishing techniques that you won't find anywhere near Aunt Gerti's wardrobe.  We've mixed it up,  junked it up and thrown it all in the pot ... and when we were done, here's what we got:
  1. fun, bright madras plaid in pinks, red, orange, yellow, & lime,
  2. an addition of feminine cotton eyelet contrast,
  3. raw-edged, bias ruching (a new technique I'm playing around with)
  4. kite string embroidery curving all over and Playing Nice,
  5. over exaggerated mending stitches,
  6. and heavy, saddle stitching in fresh white floss.

    Martina – the graphics are the pullout from the embroidery. It was fun to do.

    This group just hit the shelves and they are already bare. This is a great weight for summer and the handwork and colors are way cool!
